This is my painting City Road. I wanted to maintain the shapes and forms as well as show the vehicles on the road. In this painting, the front green car is similar in color to the building it overlaps. This creates unity and movement from the foreground car to the background. The red hue (color) of the streetcar is also repeated in the taillights of the green car, the reflection on the road, the foreground light and in the two signs. The yellow hue is repeated. Repetition gives the painting unity and movement. The view is Toronto at Dundas St., the south east side and Spadina.
This is a digital painting using mainly traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints on coarse cotton canvas (Corel Painter 12 and Wacom Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet). I worked with mainly impasto and oil brushes.
